The Biological Park of VilaNova de Gaia was the firstpermanent EnvironmentalEducation Centre in theCountry and consists of anagro-forestry area of 35hectares, where hundreds ofspecies of animals andplants live in the wild.The objective of the BiologicalPark is to improve the Visitors’understanding of the Region´slandscape, including all itscomponents (flora, fauna,climate, rural architecture, customs, hydrography, etc.), andthe contrast between this agro-forestry landscape, which ispreserved in the Park, and the urban environment. There-fore, the park is, first and foremost, a ‘memorial’ landscapeof the region, which is in danger of losing its special charac-teristics in favour of civil construction.The Biological Park is also a small Nature Reserve fornatural fauna and flora and has more than forty species ofwild birds nesting in the Park and many others which visitthe Park during the migratory season.The Biological Park also integrates a Recovery Centrefor wild animals, which have been found injured or havebeen kept illegally in captivity. It is also fully equipped towelcome the reception and parking of Auto-caravaners.
